[quote=581483]With the only exception being the annual purchase of a field point bag target for the backyard, I have sworn off all national big box outdoors stores when it comes to anything archery related. The customer service is far too inconsistent and I have on several occasions found myself educating the department staff on different products. I do this very politely, because oftentimes these are young guys with a passion for archery but very little product training. On the flip-side, you get the crusty old disgruntled guy who is dismissive of your questions and acts as though you are inconveniencing him. I’ve had this happen at Cabelas, Gander Mountain, Scheels, and Sportsman’s Warehouse. I prefer the small local pro-shop, with a staff that has been trained at a Mathews Academy in Sparta. Sure, it may cost me $10-$15 more per product, but if I have an issue or a problem, I will be talking with a knowledgable expert and small businessman or associate who values my business and is willing to stand behind the products they sell me. [/quote] I completely Agree, I'll buy from my Pro-shop before going to the Mega stores!
